A Conversation With American Legion Commander Daniel Dellinger

This week about 5,000 delegates of the American Legion are in Charlotte for the organization’s national convention.  This year’s gathering is marked by the recent uproar over accusations of mismanagement at the Department of Veterans Affairs and long wait times at VA centers around the country that some of have said led to deaths that could have been prevented.  President Obama will speak at the convention Tuesday.

WFAE went to the convention uptown to speak with the American Legion’s National Commander, Daniel Dellinger.
